Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I mainly ate in the Waldorf restaurant, food and service brilliant. Sometimes ate in bistro which can be crowded at peak times but I didn't find it too bad this time.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
As a solo traveller I don't mind a small cabin but was pleasantly surprised to find I had quite a big one, bed was very comfortable, there was more than enough space and storage room, I didn't have much luggage being only on for weekend, but it was more than enough for me. Cabin steward kept it very clean and tidy.

Ship tip

i love sailing with Cruise and Maritime Voyages and I love Magellan but I've often see. Negative reviews about them. I have never had a bad experience in five cruises. My advice is don't take any notice of any reviews try it and make your mind up.

Ports of call

Liverpool, England

5 out of 5
Only used this port for embarkation, but as rode through from station, it looked like it is well worth a visit with lots to see.

Dublin, Ireland

5 out of 5
I always love to visit Dublin. Had a very enjoyable trip round the city despite the rain! There is plenty to see and even though it was Sunday and a catholic country after about 10 am everything was open. So there was as much to see and do as on any other day. Shuttle bus had a bit of problem getting to city, but that was because of a changed road closure at short notice.

Bristol Avonmouth

5 out of 5
Only used this for disembarkation, but once again looks like a city with plenty to do and see.
